Glenmore Healthcare's hCG Program is Consistent with Dr. Oz's hCG March 14, 2012 Recommendations

The core principles of Glenmore Healthcare's hCG for Weight Loss Program are consistent with those outlined by Dr. Oz in his March 14, 2012 segment on hCG for weight loss: it is imperative for patients to undertake an hCG program under the care of a trained physician, and never use hCG (homeopathic hCG) that is sold without a prescription.

Calgary, Alberta, March 16, 2011 -- In his March 14, 2012 segment on hCG for weight loss (, Dr. Oz announced that he had "new data" on the successful use of hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) for weight loss. In a pilot study conducted by a leading medical weight management physician, Dr. Oz reported that patients following a strict, medically supervised hCG Protocol, were not hungry and lost weight, and ultimately lost more "fat vs. muscle," than patients on only a low calorie diet.

During the segment, Dr. Oz had several key messages regarding the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical grade hCG in a physician-supervised weight loss program. These key messages are consistent the hCG for Weight Loss Program offered at Calgary's Glenmore Healthcare and Wellness Clinic (

1. Consistent with the FDA's position, homeopathic hCG (hCG drops, etc.) DOES NOT WORK. Only pharmaceutical hCG, prescribed by a physician as part of a proven hCG Protocol, is effective in fat and weight loss.

2. Unlike weight loss from a restrictive diet alone, where up to 1/3 of a patient's weight loss is muscle loss, patients on an hCG Protocol loose fat from their stomachs, buttocks, etc. and "leave the muscle alone."

3. Dr. Oz recommends that any patient on a diet under 1200 calories, should be under the direct care of a physician.

Glenmore Healthcare's exclusive hCG Weight Loss Program ( concurs with Dr. Oz's hCG recommendations. Glenmore Healthcare's hCG medically supervised weight loss program is based upon the successful protocol originally developed in 1954 by Dr. Simeons, and detailed in his report, Pounds and Inches, and is built around a low calorie diet coupled with the administration of the pharmaceutical grade of the naturally occurring hormone, hCG. Glenmore Healthcare follows the IAPAM's (International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine hCG Weight Loss Protocol (, which has been administered to over 20,000 patients around the world with consistent weight loss results.

Patients participating in the Glenmore Healthcare’s hCG for Weight Loss Program are monitored by a licensed physician who specializes in hCG for weight loss. Labs, vital statistics and body analysis (BIA) measurements are recorded prior to starting the program. Patients at Glenmore Healthcare have lost as much as 20 pounds in our 26 day program, and 35 pounds in our 43 day program. At the end of the program, clinic staff will test a patient’s RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) with the same equipment as used on NBC's "The Biggest Loser." It is very important that when a patient partakes of an hCG weight loss program, that they complete it under the supervision of a physician and follow the entire detailed protocol, as is done at Glenmore Healthcare.

FPL and NASA - A Powerful Partnership

"Whether it's supporting future space flight or the growing needs of businesses and residents of the Space Coast, FPL and its Cape Canaveral Next Generation Clean Energy Center will stand ready to power that future with affordable, reliable electricity," said Mark Lemasney, FPL's General Manager at its Cape Canaveral Plant.

Juno Beach, FL (March 16, 2012) -- In April, 1965, just weeks before astronaut Ed White opened the hatch of Gemini 4 to become the first American to walk into space, Florida Power & Light launched a new power plant to help provide energy for the emerging space program.

The company gave its facility a name to reflect this new and vital partnership - the Cape Canaveral Power Plant.

NASA’s had a partnership with Florida Power & Light since the ‘60’s,” said NASA Public Affairs Director Allard Beutel. “President Kennedy laid out a few years earlier that we would go to the moon and back safely by the end of the 1960’s. And that was all from scratch. We needed buildings and facilities and everything requires electricity.”

From the Apollo missions, which achieved that most magnificent goal of landing a man on the moon, to the shuttle program and the construction of the international space station, NASA’s investments in the future, and innovations in technology helped it soar to new heights.

For nearly 50 years, FPL has helped its partner fuel that innovation.

The plant became more efficient,” said Mark Lemasney, FPL’s General Manager at its Cape Canaveral Plant. “We added natural gas to what was originally an oil fired plant. We invested to improve our operations, which allowed us to meet the growing needs of the space program.”

In 2010, FPL prepared to take its most innovative step yet. The company demolished its original plant to make room for a new, highly efficient clean energy center. The Cape Canaveral Next Generation Clean Energy Center, scheduled to come online in 2013, is designed to produce more electricity using a third less fuel and cut emissions in half. “This really is an investment in the future,” said Lemansey. “We will create a state of the art, clean energy center that will pay for itself in the savings our customers, including NASA, will realize over the life of this plant.”

The project is already having a powerful impact on the Space Coast.

It’s beautiful, it’s incredible,” said Sarah Cespedes of Port St. John, who works as a receptionist on the site of the future clean energy center. “There are a lot of local people working here and I'm one of them.”

James Gatton of Meritt Island is another local resident who has joined the 650 people employed on the project. He says he’s excited about the work and the legacy they are building for the region.

It has been fantastic,” said Gatton. “With the state of the economy, it’s really boosting it.”

When the project is complete, the new clean energy center is expected to generate $12 million in tax revenue to the local schools and governments in the Brevard County area. “Whether it’s supporting future space flight or the growing needs of businesses and residents of the Space Coast, FPL and its Cape Canaveral Next Generation Clean Energy Center will stand ready to power that future with affordable, reliable electricity,” said Lemasney.
